At Fauna & Flora International (FFI) we believe that the most effective and long-term solutions to safeguarding species and habitats lie in local hands.

As such we are committed to helping local people and organisations sustainably manage their marine environment and resources by building their knowledge, understanding and capacity to carry out conservation.

To achieve this, we support a diverse range of partners – from government agencies, NGOs and academic institutions to community-based organisations – to help them access the technical and financial resources they need to take ownership of conservation action.

We also provide training and mentoring to help these organisations improve their internal processes (such as business planning, fundraising and HR) and develop their practical and technical expertise in marine management.

Our work in action:
